New “Man vs. Wild” Episode Premieres Tonight!

June 15th, 2007 // 16 Comments

In my personal fantasy, host of the Discovery Channel’s “Man vs. Wild,” Bear Grylls, and I meet briefly in a slightly awkward, yet sexually-tension-filled moment at the newsstand in the airport before we board our flight and survive a plane crash in some snow-filled mountains. There’s lots of “huddling together for warmth” involved, as well as “repopulating the planet for the good of human kind” going on as well. And somehow, I’m able to find an electrical outlet for my blow-dryer wherever we go, so that my hair is always properly styled. It’s all very “Survivor” meets “General Hospital.” In case you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, you should totally check out tonight’s premiere of the latest episode of “Man vs. Wild” on the Discovery Channel at 9PM ET/PT. Here’s a brief summary of the gist of the show:

A seasoned adventurer and former British Special Air Service soldier, Bear demonstrates the basic survival methods for specific locations — including navigation, making fire and finding water and food — and goes one step further.

And by one step further, they mean that he seriously puts himself into these situations, in order to show exactly how it is possible to survive in the various locales he’s visited and successfully get back to civilization. Tonight’s episode has Bear stranded in the Everglades, facing alligators and hunting for food. The best part of the whole show is Bear’s attitude in any given situation. He never loses his cool, even when faced with hypothermia, or a possible bear attack, he always depicts the situation cheerfully, with his crisp British accent and making such bright observations as, “If I’m being honest, at the moment, I’m quite devastated.”

Oh yeah, and did I mention that he’s HOT. Yes, that’s all caps, my friends.

    I lovoe that show. He’s so into it. Absolutely much better than “Survivor Man.” Survivor man is really lame. I’d feel sorry for Survivor man but I keep rooting for a bear to come along and maul the guy.

  2. Rosie

    Seriously.. He’s insane and unbelievably sexy. One of the best shows on tv.

  3. Fuschia

    Oh yes, that man is H-A-W-TTTT!!!!

    There are like two episodes where he strips down to nothing because…oh, who fucking cares why? Anyways, he’s got a helluva body.

    I’d pay to be lost in the Amazon with that man. Just give me a sniper rifle so I can take out any would-be rescuers.

  4. Yes, he is hot. So hot.

    But I think Survivorman is more authentic. He is alone-carrying his own camera equipment. If he died, nobody would know until they found the body. Very spooky.

    He’s definitely hot, but there was one episode in the African savanah where he squeezed fluid out of elephant poop into his mouth because he was out of water and I have not been able to get past that and focus on the hotness since.

    I thought I was the only one with that fantasy!?! How about when he dives into the freezing Artic water and then procedes to get butt naked so he can “stay warm”. I love him.

    I love this guy. How many people can appear dignified and civilized while eating a raw fish or zebra? I saw that elephant poop episode and I still think he’s hot. You do what you got to do to survive, right? Though I probably would have asked the cameraman for a sip of his Evian before I resorted to that. I don’t care how wimpy it would make me look. I love how he was wearing Union Jack skivvies in the one episode where he jumped in freezing water to show us how to survive such an event. Yum!

  8. Beverly

    Is’nt he the guy that pee’ed on his shirt and wraped it around his head to keep cool?

  9. Joey

    Whoops – looks like he has a penchant for staying in motels… and was in the TERRITORIAL army (i.e. boy scouts for adults).

    Good morning. All human situations have their inconveniences. We feel those of the present but neither see nor feel those of the future; and hence we often make troublesome changes without amendment, and frequently for the worse.
    I am from Canada and know bad English, give please true I wrote the following sentence: “Sandra magsamen, author of living artfully and an expert on making meaningful moments, offers advice on.”

    Best regards :P, Henrietta.
